Recently, scientists found a new, pure carbon, like graphene, which is dazzling and magnetic, promising to be useful for medical and electronic devices.
Centuries ago, Egyptians picked out sacred ibises from their wild, natural habitats. They were then sacrificed according to rituals, says a new study.
Neuro-engineers find that specific neurons can locate memories and by studying recordings in neurosurgical patients, they found 'memory-trace cells' that were spatially tuned to the location of the memory.
NASA's Mars 2020 mission is geared to search for clues of ancient life in Jezero Crater in the Red Planet
Those who have more than one child in a family might work out better and healthier eating decisions, which would help to make children less obese
If you go through a sleepless night, you set off a 30 per cent rise in your emotional stress levels, says a new study
Stem cells throughout the skin need to work together, in order to help in hair regrowth. By using a molecular communication tool as part of the lymphatic system the cells can synchronize their activities.
Through a genetic sequencing technique called low-pass genome sequencing (GS), scientists have identified chromosomal abnormalities in couples who show recurrent miscarriage
Scientists have devised a new model to show how the human brain locates the source of sound, based on a more dynamic neural code
Due to friction on ice, a film of water gets generated. It is much thinner and more viscous than expected, somewhat like crushed ice you suck on in summer.
Scientists devise particular metrics to label some foods as hyper-palatable. They find that most food products eaten in the United States come under this category.
Ornamental uses of eagle talons, used by Neanderthals, have been discovered by scientists in the Iberian Peninsula for the first time.
While selecting the apt molecules for drug delivery is a complicated process, engineers are able to get some idea through fluorescent probes, thanks to which the performance of the molecules within living cells is shown.
Climate change would make plants consume more water than they do now, leaving less water for humans in North America and Eurasia, study reveals
Studies show that it would be better for children to avoid spending too much time with screen media as it could create structural changes in their brains
Language proficiency still plays a role in learners' ability to answer scientific questions. This posits a challenge for children for whom English is not the first language.
Scientists injected engineered pancreatic beta cells into diabetic mice, which were exposed to light and produced more than two to three times the typical level of insulin.
A new algorithm can boost a reader's interpretation of what constitutes a lie or false news.
Scientists found a great similarity between the manner in which faces get encoded in the brain and artificial intelligence systems called deep neural networks.
Scientists have found that high-intensity workouts can enhance memory in older adults.
